Yesterday was just the greatest.
It was everything the 4th of July should be!
Amazing friends, bright sunshine, delicious food and drinks, crazy dancing, spectacular fireworks, celebrating, hilariousness, shenanigans…
Oh and these red velvet brownies.
(How totally lame of me, right?)
When I was pondering and perusing recipes for some festive goodies to make for our wonderful Independence Day, these popped in my brain. So, I decided to jump out of the box and whip up a batch.
I’m SO glad I did. They were perfect for yesterday. The vibrant red brownie, stuffed with the bright white chocolate chips screamed 4th of July!
Also, red velvet. Its just like the most incredible flavor in the entire world. Its the perfect mix between chocolate and vanilla, not to heavy but still extremely satisfying and sweet. This brownie is dense and fudgy, but still light, just like your traditional chocolate brownie should be.
And another plus, these are really easy to eat when you are at a cookout. No nonsense. You just grab one and shove it in your mouth, no plate needed!
RED VELVET BROWNIES
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons red food coloring
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour

Preheat the oven to 350. Line an 8×8 baking pan with non stick foil.
Cream the melted butter and sugar together in a medium mixing bowl. Stir in the eggs and vanilla until thoroughly combined. Add in red food coloring.
Next, gently stir in flour, salt, and cocoa powder until just combined. Fold in white chocolate chips. Spread batter into the lined baking pan and bake for 25 minutes.
Cool completely and devour that deliciousness!
